Super Sexy Garden Gnomes

GardenWise on Garden Accents!

Garden accents say much about the gardener, and they can make or break a garden space.  Finding the right garden ornament can be a difficult task. 

We’ve all visited  our share of gardens that would inspire us more if it weren’t for those gnomes!   Religious  statuesbottle  trees, stones  with  inspirationsal phrasesand even garden gates; so many ideas to choose  from,  and not all choices blend as well into a landscape as others. I have a Chinese pagoda,  similar  in  structure  to  the  Sui  dynasty  7th  century  Four  Gates Pagoda, and a large hand carved Buddha head which I think  add strong  stone  elements   to  my  garden  space.  But  that  may not be where you will find your inspiration — there are so many choices! Bottom line, everyone has different ideas and motivations when it comes to garden accents, which is what makes visiting a friend’s garden space so much fun.
